Celebrating Black History Month at St. Benedict's Episcopal School: A Journey into African Americans and the Arts

Updated: Feb 3

We are delighted to embark on a month-long celebration of Black History at St. Benedict's Episcopal School! This year, our focus is on the captivating theme set by the Association for the Study of African American Life & History (ASALH): "African Americans and the Arts."

Our mission for Black History Month extends beyond mere acknowledgment; it encompasses creating an environment of learning, appreciation, reflection, and celebration of the remarkable contributions made by countless African Americans. Our goal is to inspire curiosity and ignite passion within our students.

This year, we are fostering a collaborative effort to collectively decide on topics and activities that are specific to each grade level. From PreK to 8th grade, our students will be exposed to a diverse array of significant African American figures and engaged in age-appropriate, enriching activities. These activities are carefully crafted to enhance various subject areas by showcasing the accomplishments of African Americans. While we provide these structured activities, we also encourage our dedicated teachers to infuse their creativity into the classroom by developing lessons tailored to their unique classes.

We invite you to join us in this journey of celebration and education. As we honor the achievements of African Americans, we also celebrate the richness of our school community. Together, let's make this Black History Month at St. Benedict's a memorable and impactful experience for all.

Stay tuned for updates and speaker announcements.
